NEW YEAR'S SOLUTION

New Year's resolutions are like pretentious laws that are meant to be broken. Or do I come across a bit harsh now? Let's take a look at the origins of New Year's resolutions. I would say that the main aim for many people is to become a better version of themselves, starting in the next year to come. Resolutions are almost like notes to yourself [Note to self: drink less, exercise more.]

The thing that bothers me about resolutions is that people don't follow through. Because if we all did, we would be ten times thinner, healthier, happier and richer by now. [Note to self: spend less, earn more.] By the end of December it is almost like thinking of resolutions is an obligation. Just because you know at least a handful of people will ask you what you came up with this year. 'What are your New Year's resolutions?' Therefore everyone (and with everyone I mean everyone: friends, family, the neighbors, the neighbors' neighbors and even the neighbors' neighbors' dog) comes up with the same old stuff, only then maybe just worded differently as the year before. [Note to self: think of more ways to becoming a better person.]

Two weeks in and Uncle Harry starts smoking again, Auntie Mary has not set foot in the gym and the neighbors' neighbors' dog has not stopped barking at random people passing by. If you would ask them what happened with their New Year's resolutions, they will most likely come up with an answer similar to 'I feel that 2015 is going to be THE year! I'll give it a shot then!'

If you really feel like you want to become a better version of yourself, then procrastinating until a new fresh year has started isn't the answer, neither are New Year's resolutions. Be a better version of yourself every day. Yesterday as a starting point is better than tomorrow!

[note to you: don't mix up becoming a better version of yourself with becoming a nun. Having fun, going crazy, dancing until 4am and sleepless nights because chatting with friends is so much better than sleeping are all part of living that happy life you're aiming for!]

Sadly it's true. But I'm trying to stick to my New Year's resolutions this time and I'm already 1,1 kg lighter!

Love,

Ik heb inderdaad ieder jaar dezelfde voornemens. Wat zeg ik? Iedere maandag heb ik dezelfde voornemens om tien kilo af te vallen, meer leuke dingen te doen en minder geld uit te geven. Maar je hebt gelijk: iedere dag is een nieuwe dag dus waarom niet iedere dag een nieuwe kans? Leuke foto's trouwens!

Haha same here! Daarom vind ik 'verplichte' nieuwjaars voornemens ook vreselijk! Gewoon doen waar je je goed bij voelt, met of zonder voornemens! x
